Bhutan travel guides

Majestic mountains and deep valleys scattered with dzongs (fortresses), Buddhist chortens (shrines) and rural villages provide a wonderful playground for anyone visiting Bhutan. This enigmatic country remains largely unexplored and has a strong emphasis on low-impact tourism, meaning that it has maintained its charming cultures and traditions.

While in Bhutan, you will no doubt come across one of its many colorful festivals or ‘tsechus’, which often involve masked dancing, bright costumes and folk songs. Our travel guide highlights those worth experiencing, allowing you to gain an insight into the unique customs that make this Himalayan Kingdom such a special place.
